One of the most interesting things to come out of this electiont o me was the importance put on moral values. I think even more surprising to me was how out of touch the mainstream media was onthis topic. They seemed dumbfounded that anyone would vote because of importance of moral values. Sometimes I just think that the media lives under a very liberal rock.

I think it is very encouraging that American Christians are making their voice heard. I was watching C-Span last night and there were protestors to the election being interviewed. They were talking about how scary it is that Christians were swinging the electiontheir way. Wellit is obvious of those people who cared to vote, the majority share the president's values. The Democratic party better wake up quickly to the facts that are out there. People of faith are voting and they are voting in droves.
